of russia? and china and the position of the other members of the security council. >> you know, i've talked to all of them. and i was pleasantly surprised that in spite of their, you know, what kofi annan called fingerpointing, they actually have all of them a reasonably responsible attitude. and all they need is really get together and try to find you know, stop pointing their fingers at the other guy. and really work out work out whatever disagreements they have and the process. >> rose: let's take russia, i have interviewed all the foreign ministers here at this table there a all kinds of issues that divide them. i don't think the russians, you correct me, are committed to assad. >> no, not at all. >> they're not offering-- they are not committed to him they are basically saying we think there has to be some kind of negotiation to solve this thing rather than -- >> what they are saying is that it has to be syrian process, syrian lead process which everybody agrees to. we are against military intervention from outside. and whatever the syrians agree to is welcome to us except perhaps if y
, his efforts are already having an effect. >> in russia, a new law has come into force, requiring organizations that receive funding from abroad to register as foreign agents. dam it conscious of the days of the cold war, and the affected groups are not at all happy about those implications. >> many plan to boycott the law, including an election watchdog. >> this russian election watchdog now has to declare itself a foreign agent because it receives funding from the u.s. and europe. >> it is clear to us that any group that does not register as an agent and is viewed as a nuisance by the state apparatus will be first to be put through the wringer by the authorities. >> the new law passed through parliament during the summer with virtually no public outcry. it is backed by the ruling united russia party, which is allied to president vladimir putin. supporters of the law say it is simply a way to identify groups involved in russian politics who use funds from overseas. >> i do not think it is repression. it is just a way of classifying politically active citizens groups. may be someo
now in terms of how will it be taken forward with russia and china? will there be confrontation? the question that's going to be asked and needs to be asked is because strategy is needed is to go to the russians and say basically, now what do you want? the president is there for four more years, no more elections, what is it that you want? deliver what the russians or not? cold war they want or what is -- what consequences of that? from what i understand the foreign minister of russia was meeting with the gulf ministers, the gcc ministers, i, from what my information is he did not give in. they are standing exactly where they were. this is not -- the strategy is needed. it is not a strategy, and the u.s., no matter how much we try to run away from that situation in syria and israel and iran, it's, yeah, light footed or heavy footed, leadership is needed. >> one follow-up question. do you see the current situation, you talked about the instability and opportunity as they say in america, an opportunity to change the channel. is it likely an opportunity for assad to change the chan
christmas tree. >> besides that video, what are you thankful for? >> the c2e crap that comes out of russia. this lucky guy. destruction without injury. the hot air ball loan that went up and somebody forgot to untie it from the van and crashes into cars. really, we're all thankful for russia. >> if you'd like to see what else we're thankful for, head over to our website, right this minute.com. >> time for ourfá ipad give awa we have winners. >> bobfá hitchcock from iowa wo said he will use itfá for surfi the web from his easy chair. and cindy from pascagoula won and will use it everyday keeping in touch with her gr)6fkids. >> it's thanksgiving thursday and you still have a chance to win. >> you have to have the buzz word. we'll be giving you the buzz word for thursday in just a bit. >> remember, you have to be 18 years of age for your chance to win at ipad 3. >> stay tuned for the buzz word. good luck, everybody. if it's your turn to host thanksgiving this year, you're freaking out, have no fear my friends. i have simple rules to follow thanks to the "new york times." >> cooked thanksgi
] and in russia. 7% of the world's energy is here. -- 70% of the world's energy is here. briefly on human-rights, i do believe actually the great difference between democracy and dictatorship is simply this -- a soft assets, but an important one. and it does not have human- rights that i necessarily proud of, but india does have accountability. china can only become a modern nation if it permits democracy and if it permits secularism, that is equality and presence of trade. until then, it can be successful, but not monitored. >> i want to say three things quickly. i want to follow up on the admirals' comments. it is remarkable to many in the u.s. military that the u.s. is not ratified the convention. we had it pretty sincere effort to bring afford to the senate. we worked a couple of the votes short. i think senator mikulski for her support. i hope we will be allowed to take that up again and get that done as a country. it is challenging to make the case we're making, which is that these potential conflicts over territory should be resolved on the basis of principles when the final conven
in syria. we've seen three security council vetoes by russia and china causing many to call the u.n., essentially, ineffective in this crisis. so it's been the interplay of these three factors, i would argue, that has led syria down the path that it has taken. in terms of u.s. policy, u.s. policy is based on the objective of having assad, as president obama called for, step aside. this was back in august of 2011. the problem with u.s. policy is that it has continually been at conflict with itself in terms of how to achieve that objective while also achieving or protecting u.s. national security interests in the region. namely, i would argue, very understandable concerns about, about the impact of unseating assad and the potential for massive instability across the region. so at the crux of u.s. policy on syria, i would argue, has resided this tension of wanting assad to go but being concerned and fearful about how to achieve that objective while also seeking to maintain stability in such a volatile region of the world. now, the debate right now on syria is focused largely on this
bought naval forces from the united states, from russia and japan all to honolulu where we had simulated a tsunami disaster. and these three great nations brought their fleets to honolulu exercising how to respond and alleviate that disaster. well, that was then. how about now? last year the united states released a new security strategy. most of you probably have not even heard of that, but i have to tell you this was a big deal. it was one of the fifth american security strategies that we have issued since the civil war. among the highlights of that security strategy was a strong statement that the united states had the highest economic and security interests in the asia pacific region. not in europe as has been for 100 years prior to that, than the asia pacific region. secondly, that we would maintain freedom of access throughout that region. in particular, we would maintain the sea lanes in that area, whatever the challenge might be. even as we reduce our defense budget, therefore we must maintain and would maintain a powerful navy, and that that navy would be charged with maintainin

from france, russia as well as switzerland are going to open yasser araf arafat's grave. this will have big certificate remonth niall character. there's a religious ceremony. a military ceremony. and the same is happening when he is laid to rest again. the whole thing they say is all going to happen in one day so it won't take very long. what the palestinian authority has left open is how long the actual investigation of the sample is going to take. all of the samples are separately going to be taken to rue sharks france and switzerland to the labs there to be analyzed and it's unclear how long this analysis is going to take. however, if it does come to light that yasser arafat was poisoned with a radioactive substance that will cause massive emotional reactions here and already the investigation is a very emotional one for the investigators and for the palestinians as the lead investigator said in his press conference. >> translator: the 27th of november will be one of the most difficult days of my life because of many personal, national and symbolic considerations. but i consider it a
where it was just the united states and russia, and now i think we have to drain the swamp. there is no other way, a sane way ahead >> you worry about rogue states, of course. you worry about terrorists. you worry about accidents. have you a movie "countdown to zero" which makes this argument in a really compelling way, and it telling the story of one russian man who actually tried to sell nuclear material to al qaeda. >> yes. >> the vignette of that was rather a low level worker in a uranium plant in the former soviet union, and he knew that by taking -- he could secrete very small amounts of highly enriched uranium, and he had a buyer that was a representative al qaeda, and the whole reason that he wanted to sell that was so that he could get a refrigerator. i mean, for him that was what -- that's all it was to him, a means to, you know, make his personal life a little better. >> queen noor, when you look at this and say you want the u.s. to lead the way and russia to lead the way in reducing nuclear arsenals. the counterargument is wait a minute all the bad actors in the
in the marketplace of ideas. with state capitalism in russia, china and the persian gulf, with political islam in the middle east. with a left wing grant a democratic populism in latin america. and then out expect nation that every country would actually converge and ultimately want to look like us will not prove to be accurate. let me give you a sense as to why i think we are heading toward diversity rather than toward ideological convergence. in my mind, the rise of the west followed a unique political and social trajectory. we as americans find our roots in the year 1000, 1100, when europe began to fragment. when the three traditional institutions of authority, the monarchy, the ability -- nobility and the catholic church began to lose their strangled over society. blacksmiths, early bankers, early professionals began to push back against traditional society. and that middle-class grew in size and strength and became the vanguard of the revolution that became the west. about religious pluralism to the reformation, and then when you about political pluralism. because monarchs said to the ris
look at the consequences for russia, this is not just a regional question. it is about the relationship with another superpower, with the u.n. i am sure that a good percentage of the people here, when bush acted to go to war without a un resolution, they were very uneasy, but now, we find people saying, "maybe obama should do it," for different reasons. it is not tied to the election. the election is not going to solve the problem for them. >> let me also say i agree, 100%. do not get me wrong. i do not think that us going in and invading is going to change perceptions. either way, there is going to be these perceptions. helping syria is by no means going to change the perception that we helped some countries because of resources versus others -- that we help some countries because of resources versus others. >> i see no such trend in the country. i just do not see any public support for it. i think shibley has got it right. intervention would make things worse for syria and for us. you ask what is going to look like in a year, and i push it out five years. i think we are looking at a c

on tuesday? forensic scientists from france, russia, and switzerland will exhume the body of the late palestinian leader. then what they're going to do is take samples and test it for poisoning. arafat will be then reburied that same day in religious and military ceremonies. rumors and speculation have continued ever since arafat died suddenly in 2004 at age 75 that he may have been poisoned. >>> a newspaper editor has quit his job over topless photos of catherine, the duchess of cambridge. meeblg o'kane resigned this weekend. in september the irish paper was one of several european papers that published pictures of the duchess sun bathing topless. the photos ignited a storm of controversy and sparked legal action by the british royal family. >>> if members of congress truly want to reach across the aisle, the place to start might be between each politician's ears. why the brain may be key to bipartisansh bipartisanship. >>> but, first, a question for all you political junkes watching this morning. what was the highest margin income tax rate in u.s. history? the highest. if you know t
the moscow bureau chief for many, many years here. you know all the things about russia here. the president was re-elected and you write that the russian president vladimir putin congratulated him on a phone call, but you say it doesn't mean that the relations between these two are so smooth. you write that moscow and washington are still at odds over how to end the carnage if syria and russia still considers the u.s. plans for a european missile defense system a threat. what is the main problem with this, and how do they overcome that defense system here to find some sort of breakthrough? >> well, you know, remember that conversation between president obama and dmitri medvedev who was the president about a year ago in which he said give me some slack. in other words, after the election i'll be able to do more, and he, indeed, asks that mr. medvedev take that message back to vladimir, which mr. medvedev did. the whole idea was -- really one of the sticking points is missile defense saying that u.s. plan for missile defense in europe. the russians are vihamently opposed to it still, and they
authorities launched a murder probe and now experts from france, switzerland and russia will examine arafat's remains, also looking for a possible concentration. the exhumation process will only take a few hours. samples will be independently analyzed in labs in russia, switzerland and france and it is unclear when the first results will be made public. in his lifetime, and even after his death, yasser arafat remains a towering figure for palestinians. but despite wanting to know the circumstances behind his illness, not everyone agrees with the exhumation. i don't support the exhumation process, this man says, because the opening of the grave is disrespectful and insulting. >> i have no objection to exhuming him as long as it is done by professionals and in total respect of the leader. >> reporter: of course i am against it, he says. it is insulting to the martyr and to the palestinian people. the palestinian authority has accused israel of being behind any poisoning of arafat. a claim the israeli government refuses to comment on. it is not clear if pulonium can be traced on his remains ei

in power and maintain control over at least part of syria and that of course is russia and iran and the result would be al-assad steven pour and the victory which is not going to be good for our simultaneous efforts to try to move iran to the negotiating table to seize the nuclear weapons, and in white portions of syria, a no-man's land rather like the fata of somalia where the militants perhaps probably associated with al qaeda would find a new home. we already see some of this. this is another reason why the administration needs to engage in putting in beijing through military means if necessary the merkley or indirectly through providing weapons and things like no-fly zones. we need to do more and we need to do more urgently or this is great to slip out of control. at best -- and it isn't very good at sifry at salles -- at worst we are going to see any emerging sunni shia fisher across the middle east would be followed by violence and fighting in iraq and elsewhere. let me touch on iraq. it hasn't received too much commentary either in the debates in the campaign or even some
that are of concern to the u.s.. when you look at the consequences for russia, i mean this is not just a regional question. it is about the relationship with another superpower with the u.n.. it's interesting, i am sure that a good percentage of the people here, when bush asked to go to war in iraq without a resolution we are very uncomfortable asking without the resolution and yet we find people now saying maybe obama should do it but for different reasons. i think it's a really big problem for the administration. it's not tied to the election. i think the elections and themselves have problems. >> actually a cautious approach example. >> let me say i agree 100%. don't get me wrong. i don't think us going in and invading, either way there are going to be these perceptions along with the perception of the positive images of the west i was helping syria is by no means going to change the perceptions that we help some countries because of resources versus others. i agree with that 100%. >> i think there's a growing trend in kind -- inside of washington to favor intervention in syria, some kind of
to russia and they're looking at markets like india. but they've not given up on europe, which will remain its key engine for growth. the european story is more nuanced than the eurozone crisis growth headlines would suggest. in fact, solaris has picked up new business in finland and belgium and will do record sales in spain this year. solaris management considers the company as much european as it is polish and believes the block is strongest staying together. so if the eurozone were a bus, say, none of the passengers should be forced to leave before the ultimate destination is reached. just setting aside for a moment the issue of trade into germany, the polish economy is clipping along at about 2.4% this year. it's expected to slow into next year. so what exactly is the central bank going to do to offset some of that weakness in domestic demand. i'm very pleased to have with me yang, on the committee, and also an academic economist. thank you for joining us. the central bank has been criticized by some for not cutting sooner and more aggressively. and the key policy rate still sits at 4.
after this election. russia is proposing a solution? >> yes, they are showing why it hasn't changed anything. the presidential statement is pretty and insignificant. a security council resolution is much more significant. what the russians are doing is clearly pushing something that they know the united states will have to veto. what they are trying to do is isolate and embarrass the united states at least so far, pushing where we will have to have a veto. if i were out there, i would enjoy doing it. i'm not sure the administration will enjoy it, but i suspect it will be till it in any event. jon: so the veto is the same as the statement and the u.s. would have to certainly almost veto it? >> yes, in a public way, not and that's what the russians are trying to do. they are trying to have this additional thing in new york. they are obviously having political reasons for the russians to do this. jon: stepping back and looking at the bigger picture, why is hamas going after and launching these rockets now. does it have something to do with iran and the nuclear capabilities? >> i suspec

have serious and continuing differences with russia -- on syria, missile defense, nato enlargement, a human-rights, and other issues. so we have to take a smart and balanced approach going forward. we need to continue expanding our engagement with russia, but with very clear rise about where we draw our lines. we also have to engage with a set of the emerging democratic powers like brazil and mexico, india and indonesia, south africa and turkey, that are exercising greater influence in their region and on the world stage. the strategic fundamentals of these relationships, shared democratic values, common economic and security priorities, are pushing our interests and do closer convergence. this is reflected in the broad strategic dialogue we have launched with the emerging powers. the key going forward will be to encourage them to leave behind the outdated politics of the past and take up the responsibilities that come with global influence, including defending our shared democratic values beyond their borders. let me turn to the third element of our agenda, what i call economic st
to russia today, television, and he said he's not going anywhere. i'm not a puppet. i was not made by the west, he said, to go to the west or to any other country. i'm a syrian. i was made in syria. i have to live in syria. and die in syria. that might sound a little bit familiar because if you replaced syria with word libya, it sounds like moammar gadhafi. >> turkish officials saying they're talking with nato of a possible deployment of missiles. >> their concern is cross-border violence going on over several months and killed turkish citizens on the turkish side of the border and lead to a spillover. they're concerned about that. the turkish president has said that this is something that's discussed. and this is an effort to contain the violence and not allow it to spill over. this is giving you a sense of the regional quality, the regional sort of how regionally this could spill over to syria. we have seen it in leb anna nicole and turkey and jordan. >> maybe a possible no-fly zone? >> i think we are far from that. very far from that idea. right now. there's no appetite because
over syria, and that, of course, is russia and iran. the result could be an assad that stays in power, iranian victory, not good for our simultaneous efforts to move iran to the negotiating table on nuclear weapons, and wide portions of sierra, a no man's land like somalia where militants, perhaps, probably associated with al-qaeda will find a new home. we already see this. this is another reason why the administration needs to engage, including engauges through military means if necessary, directly or indirectly in providing weapons, things like no fly zones. we have to do more, do more urgently, or this is going to slip out of control. at best, and it's not very good, in syria, itself, at worst, we'll see an emerging sheer sueny miss sure across the middle east followed by violence and fighting in iraq and elsewhere. let me touch on iraq. it's not received too much commentary either in the debates in the campaign or even in some of the discussions about post election foreign policy priorities, but it needs to be a priority for several reasons. iraq is a success. it's a success large
about history know about wate waterloo. he was overextended in russia. i think if obama takes this as a mandate to complete the restructuring of america he is sadly mistaken. one other quick point, though, i just passed on the way over here another revival of the musical "andee." that premiered in 1979 as the carter administration was going down the tubes and ronald reagan came into office. i'm holding onto the song, the sun will come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar they'll be sun. jon: we all want this president to succeed but there are thorny issues out there, what are the media going to say in. >> we've already seen, jon, a super concentration on that fist alcliff. i don't think i can read one more story about it in any newspaper. i think the media are going to see whether or not barack obama meant what he said in his victory speech immediately after he was declared reelected, and that is, will he be reaching out to the republicans as he said he would? does he represent all americans and not just those who voted for him. can we really, finally come to grips with some o
at the consequences for russia, i mean, this is not just a regional question. it is about the relationship with another superpower with the u.n.. really, you know, it's interesting. i'm sure that a good percentage of the people here, when bush acted to go to war in iraq, were very uncomfortable acting, and, yesterday, we find people now saying maybe obama should do it for a different reason so i think it's a really big problem for the administration. it's not due to the electionment eng the election is not going to solve that problem for them. it's not a political -- >> actually -- >> a cautious approach -- >> exactly. >> i agree 100%, don't get me wrong. i don't think we could win; right? us invading is going to change perceptions, i agree, but either way, there's going to be these perceptions along with the perceptions of the positive images of the west. us helping syria is by no means going to change the perceptions that we helped some countries because of resources versus others. i agree with that 1 # 00%. >> i think there is a growing trends inside of washington in favor of some inter
a year ago, jenna. that basically saudi arabia and russia would vie for the number one spot but now it looks like it will be the u.s. although the report does warn, listen the oil and gas boom in the united states is still in its infancy but u.s. crude oil production is up 14%. now there are moves afoot to basically stop the development of the u.s. oil and gas industry. number one, this is what the oil industry is talking about. that basically the interior department is moving to shut 1.6 million acres in the west to oil shale development. it would leave open 677,000 acres open in colorado, utah and wyoming to oil shale development and another 130,000 acres to tar sands development in utah but there will be, separate from there, there is going to be a protest at the white house scheduled for november 18th by environmentalists who are upset about u.s. oil and gas production. they're essentially saying, look the glaciers are melting. it is an issue of pollution from carbon here in the united states. the nat-gas industry would say, wait a second, natural gas is lowering carbon emission
with the russians on making sure their interests are addressed in syria. i do not think russia is wedded to assad. may be establishing a no-fly zone from turkey, may be providing direct military assistance, but something to break the region's debt lot. syria cannot afford for a long time much of the destruction that it is undertaking. my last point has to do with peace. rob cover this up. i have said this for awhile and i will say it again, very and diplomatically, it is peace now or never. i understand all the difficulties that the u.s. president will face in trying to bring this to conflict resolution. i understand the priority of this issue is not in terms of other u.s. priorities domestically. i understand the president is facing hard-line israeli government not interested in my view in 8 two-state solution that is viable, a week palestinian government that does not have what it takes to come to an arrangement. i understand all this. i also understand if something drastic is not done today, we will lose this opportunity probably forever. one has to choose between the difficult and the impossi
union, russia, i met with tony blair yesterday here in jerusalem, and that peace process hadn't effect live gone anywhere since 2008. it's really been mired in a total collapse and a total mess. i'm not suggesting there's no hope it can be revived. it's going to take a lot of goodwill, maybe out of the crisis in gaza something positive can emerge, we shall see. there is no peace process for any practical purposes. george mitchell gave up 18 months or so ago when he dropped out of the obama administration, there hasn't been much. let's see what hillary clinton secretary of state can do when she meets with prime minister netanyahu and then meets with abbas and then talks with morsi. for all practical purposes for now that peace process is dormant. >> all right. wolf, thanks. we'll get back to you as soon as there's breaking news, obviously, if there's a deal or truce that comes out of it in the next couple of hour. israel says the talks are still going on. hamas is telling reuter they've reached an agreement with the israelis they'll end the fighting. you've got breaking news on the talk
abbas. >> the three conditions are put forward by the united states of america, russia, the independent united nations. they say stop shooting and start talking. we are not alone in that. if the world can agree that they can shoot and everything will be open and they won't be punished, it's a fantasy. i think even the egyptians understand deep in their hearts that this will not fly. and i'm presently surprised by the position taken by the president of egypt. >> mohamed morsi? >> yes. >> he's been doing a good job, in your view? >> i'm worried that his heart is somewhere else. but his behavior is responsible. and because responsibility is needed for everybody, for us and for them. you know, people say we are the problem. that's not the problem. hamas is losing peace. people say from the outside, newspapers, they say take out your settlements and lead your own life. nobody faults us. we have had 18 settlements. we took them out. there were close to 9,000 settl settlers. we left gaza free, open, gaza and israel. now we want to continue with the palestinians and people are saying, what are
lady liberty dad at this holiday season. rick: russia is warning nato against going patriot missiles near turkey's border with syria. they requested the support as fighting has begun to spill over into the territory. >> you can see this here on the border city, captured by the syrian rebels. armed groups and syrian government forces, targeting rebels and aleppo. fifteen people, including four children were killed. it also leveled a building in the hospital already suffering from six previous airstrikes. heather: israel and hamas claiming victory as the cease-fire appears to be holding. it keeps israel from deploying ground forces were targeting hamas leaders. it is stopping palestinians from launching rocket attacks. but both sides say they are ready to resume fighting if the deal breaks down. how likely is the cease-fire took hold? let's bring in colonel tony shirker. he is part of the center of advanced studies and an author of a great book. >> thank you for coming to join a. >> you're welcome. heather: happy thanksgiving as well. how long is this truce to hold? >> this was starte
with this as merit of urgency. russia already making its discomfort known, saying it's worried simply because nato is there in a military capacity. it could get drawn in, and we've seen this before. the turkish military firing back at the syrian regime when they shell into turkish territory. a very volatile situation here, and many observers thinking for once nato has that really sophisticated firepower on the border with syria, the no fly zone may end up emerging simply because it's going to be hard for people to know on the nato side, on the turkish side exactly what syrian regime activity amounts to being hostile or not. frederica. >> nick payton-walsh, thank you so much in beirut. >>> ahead on "newsroom international" anti-government rebels storm a critical city in the democratic republic of congo. now thousands are running from the violence. 's big news. presenting androgel 1.62%. both are used to treat men with low testosterone. androgel 1.62% is from the makers of the number one prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. it raises your testosterone levels, and... is concentrated, so you c
it to obviously her area of expertise is russia. it felt to me like this piece was almost fatalistic. she is calling for more american help, she is calling for a greater american leadership role but it sended to me, read to me like she really didn't expect that to happen. in that sense i agree with her. if you look at the campaign we've just been through the president of the united states and his vice president ran on a campaign that embraced this idea of leading from behind. they believe this is working, they believe this is successful. i think the opposite, it seems very clear that secretary rice believes the opposite. i don't think that we are likely to see the united states take a more significant role in the region any time soon, given the way that the president and joe biden ran for the past year. martha: there may be an irony in the fact that susan rice, who is being considered as the next secretary of state, you know, sort of failed to see the broader picture in what happened at benghazi and we wonder what the direction of the next secretary of state would be. i just put that out
